Admin gets 500 error on log in, other users OK (4 posts)

    I'm unable to access my site's dashboard as an admin user, but can access from other user accounts with lower privileges (e.g. editor). If I change that other user's status to admin using phpMyAdmin then the same problem occurs for that user - changing their status back corrects the problem.

    When I log in as an admin user I get a 500 error. I've tried disabling all plug-ins, reinstalling WP 3.0.1 manually, and everything else that appeared relevant on the Codex login trouble page.

    The server (webhost = Pickaweb) is running Linux kernel 2.6.18, WP 3.0.1, MySQL version 4.1.22, PHP 5.2.9.

    Check if you have right permission for your wp-admin folder

    Thanks. Folder permissions are 0755, index.php (and other files) has 0644. I assume those are correct?
